61 Partnering to help all kids learn 60 A Lexile is… A unit for measuring text difficulty that is linked to the RIT score, Northwest Evaluation Association’s unit for measuring reading comprehension. These links allow teachers to use the student’s RIT score to find books, periodicals, and other reading materials that will be appropriately challenging for each student.

62 Partnering to help all kids learn 61 LexileNWEA RIT …the level of text that a student can read with 75% comprehension. For a student with a RIT of 205, books with a 600 Lexile provide an excellent match with the student’s instructional reading level. The book, After the Rain by Norma Mazer is a 600L text. The Lexile score represents…

63 Partnering to help all kids learn L Look at the Lexile as a range of scores… L The teacher might use the lower part of this range as a target for the student’s – independent reading level The upper part of a L range might be used for the student’s group reading program – instructional reading level 650L LexileNWEA RIT
